Alzheimer’s Disease Center


Alzheimer’s disease care at Boston Medical Center is under the auspices of the Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center established in 1996. We are one of two Alzheimer’s Disease Centers in Massachusetts and one of 31 Centers nationwide, funded by the National Institute on Aging.

We provide a range of clinical services for patients and families affected by Alzheimer's disease and related memory and neurobehavioral problems. Our expert multidisciplinary team of clinicians includes experienced professionals in the fields of neurology, neuropsychology and nursing. We provide care in both outpatient and inpatient settings located throughout eastern Massachusetts.

Researchers at our Center are working to translate research advances into improved diagnosis and care for Alzheimer’s disease patients while, at the same time, focusing on the program’s long-term goal—finding a way to cure and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

We invite you to visit the official website for the Alzheimer’s Disease Center, hosted by Boston University, for additional information.

We are located in Boston Medical Center’s beautiful Shapiro Center in Boston’s historic South End.

We are continually working to
improve diagnosis and care for
Alzheimer's disease patients as
well as finding a cure.
